Deep learn­ing plat­form launched by Linux Foun­da­tion

OpenSource For You - - Fossbytes -

The Linux Foun­da­tion al­ready sup­ports mul­ti­ple open source foun­da­tions and projects like Cloud Foundry, the Cloud Na­tive Com­put­ing Foun­da­tion, CNI, CodeAurora, IOTiv­ity and many more. It has added an­other feather to its cap by flag­ging off the LF Deep Learn­ing Foun­da­tion (LF DLF) in March 2018. This foun­da­tion sup­ports open source in­ven­tions in ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence, ma­chine learn­ing and deep learn­ing. It also makes these valu­able tech­nolo­gies eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble to data sci­en­tists and de­vel­op­ers all around the world.

The LF Deep Learn­ing Foun­da­tion was started by Am­docs, B.Yond, AT&T, Baidu, Huawei, Nokia,

Tech Mahin­dra, Ten­cent, Univa and ZTE, a con­sor­tium of firms. The aim is to pro­vide a neu­tral space where de­vel­op­ers will be able to col­lab­o­rate for speedy and wide­spread adop­tion of deep learn­ing tech­nolo­gies.

Long term deep learn­ing strate­gies can evolve on this plat­form, and it can of­fer sup­port to var­i­ous projects based on AI, ma­chine learn­ing and deep learn­ing ecosys­tems. One of the projects al­ready launched by the LF DLF is Acu­mos AI, which will pro­vide a plat­form where it is easy to cre­ate, share, dis­cover and ap­ply ma­chine learn­ing, deep learn­ing and an­a­lyt­ics mod­els, even­tu­ally mak­ing the po­ten­tial of AI ac­ces­si­ble to more users. AT&T and Tech Mahin­dra have pro­vided the ini­tial code for the Acu­mos AI project.

Soon the LF DLF will fea­ture projects from Baidu and Ten­cent. The Baidu’s EDL project equips Ku­ber­netes with elas­tic sched­ul­ing and uses Pad­dlePad­dle’s fault tol­er­ant prop­erty to specif­i­cally im­prove the us­age of Ku­ber­netes clus­ters. For Big Data mod­els, Ten­cent’s An­gel project pro­vides a dis­trib­uted high per­form­ing ma­chine learn­ing plat­form de­vel­oped in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Pek­ing Univer­sity. Count­less pa­ram­e­ters can be sup­ported by this project.
